Welcome

My Blog's aim is to promote and encourage others to participate in the wonderful hobby that is Moth-trapping.
So why do we do it? well for some people it is to get an insight into the world of Moths, for others it is to build a list of species much like 'Twitching' in the Bird world.
The reason I do it....you never know what you might find when you open up that trap!
I hope to show what different species inhabit our Country by getting people aware of what is out there.
On this Blog you will find up-to-date records and pictures.
I run a trap regularly in my garden here in Hertfordshire and enjoy doing field trips to various localities within Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

Please also check out the links in the sidebar to the right for other people's Blogs and informative Websites.

Thanks for looking & happy Mothing!

Garden Catch 11/06/18 - Things really pick up!

A great selection of species awaited me on the morning of the 12th of June with over 60 species noted including 9 new for year species.

Blotched Emerald added a splash of green. Not a common moth here but usually seen as singletons annually here.
Argyresthia cupressella was the pick of the catch on the micro end of things.

Garden species count for 2018 now upto 204.

Here are the new for year species.
